Slumping, rested Giants get back to work

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- Coming off a bye week and riding a two-game losing streak, the New York Giants realize it's time to turn things around.

While they have a one-game lead over Dallas in the NFC East, the defending Super Bowl champions (6-4) also have a brutal six-game closing stretch that starts Sunday night against the red-hot Green Bay Packers (7-3), winners of five in a row.

It's not an unfamiliar position for Tom Coughlin's team. It also had a tough stretch run a year ago and managed to right things just in time to win its second title since 2007. The difference this year is that the Giants don't have two games remaining with the Cowboys. They have already split games with their rivals from Texas, and Dallas' schedule is easier the rest of the way.
